Grandin AB Homes & Real Estate

The neighbourhood of Grandin has had some interesting residents.
During the 70s, a Grandin resident named Don Clark built a large concrete boat in his driveway. Dubbed “Clark’s Ark,” the 46-foot behemoth took four years to complete, after which time it was towed to the Pacific Ocean.
There is another very famous name tied to the Grandin community. When the United Church opened its doors in 1957, the first organist was none other than St. Albert’s very own Lois Hole. Known for her business acumen, gardening expertise, and kind heart, Lois was an Alberta Lieutenant Governor, author, wife, mother, and commercial greenhouse owner. She is commemorated and remembered with many landmarks that bear her name, including the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, a branch of the Edmonton Public Library, and the Lois Hole Provincial Park to the west of St. Albert.
Some famous faces have come out of Grandin, but what is more important is that everyone that lives in the neighbourhood feels like the special and prominent person they already are.
